The Worcester State Theatre Spring 2013 production of “War Children” received a Merit Award for Outstanding Work as a Creative Performance Ensemble from the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival Region 1.

Adam Zahler (Visual and Performing Arts) accompanied 19 current and recent WSU students to the snowbound festival, where they presented scenes and design work. Current students Matt Gray (VPA) and Kacie Clinton (Psychology) were cast in new play readings for the New Play Program.

In addition to his planned activity of directing a reading for the New Play Program and offering a directing workshop, Zahler was asked to step in as a respondent for the SDC (Stage Directors and Choreographers, the professional directing union) Directing Program. Zahler, an SDC member, joined two other directors in observing, evaluating, and responding to the work of student directors.

He also participated in an unscheduled discussion of professional issues at the request of the Directing Committee.  And, during the now storm, he led an impromptu workshop for interested students in How to Bark Like a Dog.
